Tender Mercies

Tender mercies
Tender thoughts
Bringing me gladness
Bringing me thoughts.

Soft and gentle
Of what I have
Not what I have not.

Tender mercies
Tender thoughts
Resting peacefully
Here in my thoughts.

Tender Mercies Envelop Me

Tender mercies envelop me
Hold me still, holding me.

The solace I need
Comforting, showing me.

Suffice to say I feel comforted
Safe, in the arms of mercy.

Tender Mercies Follow Me

August 23, 2012

Tender mercies follow me
Down the path
And cross the sea.

Tender mercies set me free
Of all this heartache
Anguish and hostility.

Tender mercies let me be
Happy, pleasant
Full of courtesy.

Tender mercies fill me
Full of grace, calm
And dignity.

Tender mercies now I see
Life and love
Can set me free.

Tender mercies let me be
A better person than
Even I thought I could be!

By Tender Mercies I Live

May 24, 2012

By tender mercies I live
My life empowered
By the holy soul
That masters all life.

My life.

Let me live my life
By tender mercies
With no strife.
